Courtney Pippin-Mathur (illomama on QT) has signed with agent Joanna Volpe of New Leaf Literary & Media.
As a writer/illustrator, my best stories start with a character in my sketch book. I had vikings on the brain for some reason and Gro appeared in my sketchbook one day. I liked how she looked and decided she had a story to tell.
I am an author and illustrator of children's books. I have a BFA in Studio Art and my first book will be published in 2012 by Flashlight Press, titled "Maya was Grumpy". I am searching for an agent to be my cheerleader, publishing spy and business partner. My portfolio can be viewed here: www.pippinmathur.com.
Query: Gro wants nothing more than to be the biggest, baddest viking in her village. Unfortunately, she's barely as tall as a mead cup, smells like lavender and can't grow a beard. No one in her family will let her do anything fun but Gro knows her heart is a as rough and tough as the biggest, smelliest, warrior. So, late one night, she sets out on an adventure of her own that will show everyone how fierce she truly is.
I have the dummy in pdf form available if you are interested.
Thank you in advance for your time and attention,
